Celestron CPC 925 GPS (XLT) Telescope

This feature packed model comes standard with Celestron's renowned StarBright multi-coatings. The CPC 925 GPS is compatible with the complete line of Celestron photographic and visual accessories.

What makes the CPC 925 GPS great for astrophotography?

  • Longer focal length primary and lower magnification secondary— Contributes to a flatter focal plane with less coma and off-axis astigmatism.
  • Baffle design —Optimized for astrophotography. Minimizes vignetting at the edge of the field of view. This reduces light drop off at the corners of your film plane.
  • Hand Figured Optics — Just like all other Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, the CPC 925 GPS optics are individually matched and hand figured to ensure the highest optical quality in every telescope.
  • Focus mechanism — At the heart of Celestron's Schmidt-Cassegrain focus mechanism are pre-loaded ball bearings, not bushings, minimizing focus shift.
  • Heavy-duty die cast aluminum fork arms —For maximum rigidity.
  • Unique roller bearing design bearing and shaft —The telescope base rotates around a wide 9.5” track for maximum stability; especially important when equatorially mounted for imaging.
  • Autoguider port — For interfacing an autoguider or a drive corrector for long exposure imaging or astrophotography.
  • StarBright coatings — High quality multi-layer coatings maximize transmission of light to the film plane.
